Originally published August 7, 2014
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission member John Norris is expected to announce this week that he will leave the agency, according to a report from SNL Financial.
Sources say President Barack Obama is likely to select the current chairman of the Arkansas Public Service Commission, Colette Honorable, to replace Norris, SNL reported. Honorable is the president of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC).
Norris, a Democrat, was nominated for a partial term in 2010 to fill a seat on the commission. He was reconfirmed in 2012 for a full term expiring in June 2017.
